Wrongful Death

Choosing the right wrongful death attorney is essential to ensuring your case will be handled with care from day one. Attorneys who specialize in wrongful death have experience with the unique considerations surrounding wrongful death, including case law and procedural rules. Although the loss of a loved one can never be fully compensated for, wrongful death attorneys in Oregon can help families get back on the stable financial ground and increase safety in the community by holding people accountable so the same set of circumstances doesn’t happen to someone else.

What is a Wrongful Death?

An Oregon wrongful death claim is essentially a negligence personal injury claim that has resulted in a death. Although a variety of unsafe and negligent acts can lead to wrongful death, some of the more common causes of wrongful death include medical malpractice, auto, car, and bicycle accidents, and product liability. Wrongful death claims in the state of Oregon have a three-year statute of limitations, meaning you or your lawyer must settle your case or file a lawsuit within three years of the incident. Although a wrongful death claim can never compensate for the loss of a loved one, it can assist with the loss of income and financial burden many families are left with. Our lawyers work with families to recover compensation for:

  • Medical expenses prior to death
  • Loss of future wages and financial support
  • Physical pain prior to death
  • Lost companionship
  • Mental anguish
  • Funeral expenses
